It has been months since that initial design phase, but it is time to put our deteriorating computer desk dining table aside and take the risky plunge of bringing a concept to life.
I don't normally make plans. I measure spaces, draw a sketch, cut wood, assemble and modify as I go. For the precision required for this build however, I made a plan in PowerPoint (inspired by my friend Joanne) to demonstrate what was in my head. The overall table frame is 30" wide by 48" long, which would seat 4 wide Squared2 dining chairs.
The dining table legs and frame cost me $15 out of pocket so far.
I've made several designs and cut lists for the top, and then I'll have to decide if stain will touch the wood, or not. =D
